The generosity of the Hillston community and other friends of Deyan Cashmere's family has allowed the 20-year-old to make his way to the USA and receive treatment for his Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
While donations to the Cashmere family have so far been tremendous, reaching $159,602 this month, the situation was for a time looking dire.
Until this month the family was left with an estimated travel and medical bill for Deyan's first round of treatment in Seattle which was valued at $600,000 alone.
However a recent grant to the family from the federal government, thanks partly to the efforts of Farrer Mp Sussan Ley, have promised to cover much of these expenses.
Although she cannot give the name of the fund, Ms Ley was pleased to announce that the Cashmere's will be benefiting from a special federally funded program to help patients receive cutting edge and life saving treatments.
With members of the Hillston community also organizing the upcoming Live At the Lachlan Festival to be held in April, as well as a charity auction and raffle which ran on Saturday, much of the money raised within Hillston will now be going towards covering the Cashmere's domestic medical bills.
"The family is going to have huge expenses when Deyan comes back," Ms Ley said.
"He will need more treatment when he comes home and that's why it's important to go ahead with the fundraising."
Indeed while Deyan was getting ready to take his flight to Seattle on Saturday a sea of green shirts occupied the lawn at Hillston's Ex Servicemen's Club.
Residents were eager to bid as they attended the Deyan's Dash to the USA Charity Auction and Continuous Raffle event.
Among the prizes being hawked were two tickets to an exclusive lunch and tour of parliament house donated by Ms Ley.
The tickets were picked up by Hillston residents Anna and Owen Cooper and also include a trip to see a live parliament session during question time.
Attending the auction on Saturday, Ms Ley said she was blown away to see the auction items all go "for probably a lot more than they were worth."
"It demonstrates the generous spirit of everyone," Ms Ley said.
"I actually donate this quite a lot to charities.
"But this time the tickets went for over 500 dollars so I'm going to have to make a special effort to give them their moneys worth," she said.
Ms Ley said she has also been impressed by the Hillston residents who have been volunteering to help tend to the Cashmere's sheep farm.
